Oil on canvas
150 x 130 cm
In making her work, Groobey engages with both psychology and the haptic, knowledge gained from the intimate experience of handling materials. In Bridge Pose the surface is built up with a sumptuous tactile quality that connotes a paradoxical feeling of concrete matter and weightlessness; her forms shift and float about the canvas, anchored only by the grid base background. With an innate nimbleness and dexterity her works describe an area between flight of fancy or daydream and tangible corporeal sensation.
